Felix's green scheme is a simple A to B collection and delivery service, collecting end-of-day food from cafes, restaurants and delis and then delivering it for Londoners in need.

Volunteers complete pre-determined routes which collect from various food suppliers and then deliver this food immediately to charities in the local area.

The operation is completely green - we have a fleet of fully electric vans volunteers use on the driving routes, as well as walking and cycling routes where volunteers use a Felix courier bag to distribute food from A to B - either on foot or by bicycle.

We are completely powered by volunteers and are always looking for new recruits to join the team and our food rescue mission. Get involved today!

When and where can I volunteer?

Driving routes are currently operating in Victoria, Barbican, Kensington, Camden.

Walking and cycling routes are currently operating in Old Street, Bishopsgate, Marylebone, Oxford Circus and Canary Wharf.

Each shift takes between 1 and 3 hours depending on which route you sign-up to. You choose which routes you complete. Shifts run in the early mornings, over lunch, and in the evenings - so you can fit it into the working today.

The operation runs Monday to Friday.


We require all green scheme volunteers to register for an online information session as their first step towards volunteering with us. Pick a time from the drop down below. No times suit? Send us an email at [email protected]

With a full-on job and social life it’s easy to stay in a little bubble. Volunteering at The Felix Project is a great way to counteract a busy life and provide perspective.
